Abstract

Wavelet transform is not applicable to arbitrarily-shaped region (or object) in images, due to the nature of its global decomposition. In this paper, the arbitrarily-shaped wavelet transform (ASWT) is proposed in order to solve this problem and its properties are investigated. Computational complexity of the ASWT is also examined and it is shown that the ASWT requires significantly fewer computations than conventional wavelet transform, since the ASWT processes only the object region in the original image. Experimental results show that any arbitrarily-shaped image segment can be decomposed using the ASWT and perfectly reconstructed using the inverse ASWT.
